    Does any body know for sure the rules and regulations for flying around downtown Orlando?...Due to proximity to executive airport?

    Would you be within 5 miles of any airport? If so, you need to call the tower and obtain permission to fly.

    Not sure what you are referring to with your statement. For commercial use, yes you will need a license. You don't need a license if you are using it for hobby only. But you still have to abide by the local rules and you must register it with the FAA.

    I'm right outside of the 5miles radius from the Orlando airport...but it happens I live right in the line of landing approach which planes fly very low (above 500')...am I violating any rule?

    I'll assume you're south of MCO as 5 miles north would put you up by Executive airport so taking a quick glance at the airspace just outside of 5 miles south of MCO, it looks like the floor of the airspace is 900 feet up to 10,000 feet.

    Stay 400 or below and you should be good to go under Part 107 or Part 101.. The airlines will be at 900 feet or higher.

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm reading this wrong.

    Thanks for the quick reply, yes, south of MCO, ...is just they pass at a very low altitude and I can read the 747 from Virgin Airlines every day
